The Odyssey seats up to eight and has up to five LATCH connecters. Some reviewers said: "If you need a comfortable, roomy and reliable family wagon that is also slightly cool and holds it value like gold in a bear market, the 2012 Honda Odyssey is the minivan for you. Because in the world of minivan cool, the Odyssey minivan ranks near the top of its class, and with an excellent reputation for safety, resale and reliability, choosing an Odyssey over a Dodge Caravan or Toyota Sienna won't have you second-guessing your decision."

Even if your kids are more into iCarly than car seats, the Odyssey has you covered with its 16.2-inch rear entertainment screen that can be used to play DVDs or video games – or both at the same time. While it's pricier than other vans, reviewers say the Odyssey is worth it. Because it offers the best combination of reliability and safety ratings, interior space and family-friendly features.
Compare with other brand minivans, reviewer said that the Odyssey is also a bit pricey compared to vans like the Dodge Grand Caravan and Kia Sedona. But all things considered it's a great choice for a family vehicle.
